THE ELCHANET '62
THE SALUTATION OF THE DAWN
Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course He all the Verities
and realities of your Existence:
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty.
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
To-day well-lived makes every Yesterday
a dream of Happiness,
And every To-morrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn.
(from the Sanskrit,
of Unknown Authorship)
The Gifts of Dawn
The prophets of doom are many. Their voices sound the knell
of destruction. Throughout long centuries ravaged by strife and
conflicting passions, they have presaged the extinction of hu-
Since the beginning of his existence, man has been the un-
willing victim of nature's forces, forever battling the capricious
elements which seek to dominate and destroy him. hHe has strug-
gled against oppressive environments, and fought his fellow man
in a ceaseless search for power and immortality, seeking to quench
the springs of ambition that flow in his soul. The greatest duel,
however, has been between man and the forces within himself.
He has perpetually sought to rule over his will, to be master of
his fate and author of his destiny. These struggles are the essence
of man, they are the signs of ruin to the prophets of disaster.
Humanity, however, has repudiated these false seers, for It has
emerged triumphant from the battlefield of life's eternal wars.
The symbol of man's struggles and his ultimate victory is the
morning Dawn. The rising sun brings with it warmth, light, and an
end to the darkness of the night; but it also carries within its
shimmering rays a message to mankind — the twin concepts of
creation and eternity. Each day there Is a new Dawn, a phenome-
non of nature, which, paradoxically, is as old as the world itself, and
which will continue to exist until the end of that universe. Man,
too, represents this concept. Humanity has faced the same chal-
lenges and fought the same battles since the beginning of time.
The battles against nature, fellow man, and himself have never
ceased nor failed to occupy men's thoughts or direct their actions.
Yet, with each new generation there arise new challenges to test
man's ingenuity and nnoral strength. The challenges of the space
age, nuclear weapons, and technology are characteristic of a new
era unknown to mankind one hundred years ago; and the way we
meet and conquer these challenges today will influence the future
Aurora, the rosy-hued Dawn, signifies the end of darkness
and the beginning of a new day — a new life. This renewal of light
each day is the promise of Dawn and causes "hope to spring
eternal in the human breast." It is this hope, this faith, this gift of
Dawn — G-d's creation — that is man's salvation. That and man's
indomitable will to survive are why humanity exists today, despite
the obstacles and struggles that seek to vanquish It.
What is true of all mankind is, perhaps, even more true of the
Jew. h^e has had to struggle against the Intolerance of man and
the persecution of nations. He has witnessed the enslavement, the
exile, and the genocide of his people; but, because of his deep
and imperishable belief in G-d and hlis Torah, he has emerged
triumphant, with dignity and greatness. Judaism, too, embraces
the concepts of birth and eternity. With each generation our
ancient religion is imbued with new life — in a sense, given a new
Dawn. Yet, the original spirit and meaning of Judaism remains to
guide us through future decades.
Love of G-d and man is the heritage of the Jewish people.
It is a heritage that we the graduates of 1962 are proud to bear
as we join our people and all mankind in the endless struggles
from the administration
I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings to the first graduating class of the
Yeshiva University High School for Girls of Manhattan. Yours will always be the rare
distinction of being the pioneers that will serve as an inspiration for all future students.
The progress you have shown, both intellectually and spiritually, is a tribute to your
I hope that in your future endeavors you will continue to be a source of pride and
inspiration to your families and that the ideals you received at the High School for Girls
will enable you to fulfill your noble roles as "mothers in Israel" and sources of leadership
in the Jewish community.
President, Yeshiva University
On this joyous occasion in your lives, when you have reached an important mile-
stone in your preparation for the fullness of the days to come, I am happy to greet you
and to wish you well. You have completed successfully the course of studies prescribed
in the English and Hebrew departments in our High School — some with distinction —
all with credit to yourselves, your parents, and to our great institution. During the most
formative years of your lives, you have actively participated in the harmonious blending
and fusion of Jewish lore and secular learning.
Whether you choose as your life's work some phase of human knowledge and
dedicate yourselves to study and teaching, or give your energies to the fields of daily
human needs, or devote yourselves to the realm of the spirit, remember the philosophy
and the way of life that you have been taught here. Although the problems that you,
as Jews, must face in this confused world are not always clear, you must, each and all
of you, cling to those elements of our cultural past that have made us great as a people.
You, graduates of Yeshiva University High School for Girls (Manhattan) have had
an education different from that of the rest of the Jewish youth in this country. You ha\e
had an opportunity to learn the value and significance of intense Jewish study, and to
gain a deeper insight into a truer understanding of the Jewish consciousness and soul.
With this great common bond, you are strengthened to withstand the material influences
of the time, and are less prone to fall prey to the disintegrating forces which are
threatening to sweep away everything that is dear and precious in life. Strengthen that
bond; unite, assert yourselves and your influence in the lives of our youth, so that by
your example you may pro\e that these }-cars in Yeshi\'a University High School ha\-e
not been in vain, and that the instruction and the inspiration you receive here shall be
a blessing to you and to those who are to be influenced by you.

My sincerest congratulations to you, the first graduating class of the newest of the
high schools of Yeshiva University. As pace setters for a student body which will
number over 350 next term, you have had a tremendous responsibility and, by and large,
acquitted yourselves with distinction.
I recall very vividly our first school term a little less than three years ago. As the
oldest class, a role which was yours until now, it was your task to provide the necessary
leadership for the many facets which make up student government. This year book, the
many successful G.O. affairs, and the traditions which you have handed over to the
lower class students attest to your success.
Scholastically, it has been the aim of the Yeshiva to provide you with a balanced
program of traditional religious subjects and varied general studies. The main objective
of the Yeshiva has been to graduate a modern Jewish woman, who is endowed with a
deep understanding of the prime ethical and practical values of our ancient tradition,
but yet is aware of the need to adjust to contemporary living. While in a heterogeneous
group like yourselves, scholastic achievement and moral influences may vary, it is
our hope that the majority of you will remember the vitality of our cultural heritage,
and that many of the "abstractions" discussed in your classes actually can be applied to
everyday experiences. In this sense you will attest to the need for religious secondary
education of girls and the timely action of Yeshiva University in expanding its educa-
tional program for women.
I have confidence in your integrity and good sense and wish you well in all your

An enthusiast of John Kennedy s
election victory and a member
of the "intelhgensia,' Felice was
even able to mesmerize Mr. Liiker
as she shd through his World

source of amusement to her

and gift for writing compete with
her love for political science as
she maps her future.

We came in September, 1959, found P.S.
141 and were told to come back next year.
We entered our "newly renovated" edifice
with trepidation, but it was too late to
change ... Or was it? . . . Rebecca leaves
to return to leave to . . . Touring the school,
we learn that the third floor, the fourth
floor, and the lab are off limits, but the
boys' bathroom is ours. . . . Chumash is
taught by Castro ; and English by a Canadian
continental dresser with connections "Up-
town. " Everyone loves him, but Havvah falls
hardest. ... We do busy work for Art, home-
work for French, and learn how to earn a liv-
ing in Bio. . . . Mishnah is spent amassing
zeroes— "Koait" . . . and Ivris on one foot.
. . . Only from an itchy Geometry book can
you learn what a couple of interesting curves
can do to squares. . . . M.L. smiled and the
world smiled with him. . . The second time
we trembled. ... As beatniks we honor
Thanksgiving, and Myril sees Albany in her
Chrystall ball. ... We ruin a fire drill , are
disqualified from the elections and choose
Deana president for the first of three times.
... We play "hide-and-seek" and announce
Miss Riback's child-bride-hood to the Fifth
Avenue bus. . . . The mouse roars as we meet
for intersession. ... We roar when greeted
by Rabbi Berenholz' gestures and Mrs. Lev-
inson's modern art. . . . What a change from
trees. . . . Helenie institutes the tradition
of Steif retests. . . . Round and round goes
the Guggenheim, but we behave this time. . . .
The Soph weekend leaves us hoarse as the team
begins the three-year tradition of basket-
ball losses. We go en masse to see Ben Gurion
and M.L. loses his class to Dean Bacon? . . .
The J. E.G. gets us disqualified from the
sing, but for nought. "Soph's Pacific" is
presented anyway, as our year of sophomore
seniorhood ends on the glorious note of
"Bloody Marty." 3]
Sunburnt, we return--at least most of us do — to
find ourselves still "seniors" with a new naive batch
of freshmen to bother and instruct ... We study each
day and study every night for "Marty's Inquisition"
. . . Mr. Steif goes back to teaching on two feet, one in
each period . . . "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou?"
Out buying a tie to match my brown wool shirt . . . Peter:
Anon . . . Thursdays the Chem class tries to explode the
school, and the fallout rate depletes the popuation . . .
New Frontierswomen all — Jack's cute, Jackie's cuter,
Caroline is cutest , Felice Hamada is Secretary of State ,
and the "poll" is a farce . . . New class refrain:
"pachat, shachat, bor, bor" . . . Disqualified again,
this time it's the Talent Show . . . Aviva judged guilty
of crooking her finger ... We raise a rumpus and the
table at the Chanukah Chagiga ... We are finalized and
regentized-After that I. A." regents we, too, could use a
pill . . . Our mothers pacify us — It will be clearer the
second time around . . . Hebrew book reports are easy ex-
cept when you haven't read the book . . . Rhoda fools no
one except Mr. Steif ... We travel to school the MondaV
of the blizzard and are rewarded by another day of school
. . . Where did you go? Out. What did you do? Went to the
Dean' s Reception . . . Oh, that Y.U. togetherness feel-
ing . . . The Oscar to Rabbi Metzger for his role as Rabbi
Akiba who fell in "like" with his wife . . . M. L.'s
birthday, and we toast him with Metrecal . . . Jackie has
a nephew right in the middle of History . . . Mr.
Schwartzbard waits for us to confess, and waits, and
waits, and waits ... Lag B'Omer is cold and wet ... Mrs.
Adler ends up bandaged — Oh those pants . . . Barricade
the doors, the Romans are coming — Veni , vedi, and the
Latin class conquers yet another Latin teacher . . .
Spring, the end of the Sweet Sixteen season and the be-
ginning of the hunting season — bring a boy to "The
Mikado" . . . The mathematical "elite" stay after
school and finally understand Algebra . . . The missing
link was at Haaren all along. We sing our way to Israel,
forget to take the proper channels and arrive second be-
hind the Freshmen . . . Quality has lost to quantity . . .
President deGaulle foils the French students, and Trig
fails the "darlings" ... A celebration is in order
as we are officially ordained SENIORS as Suzan' s guests
for dinner. We promise to return and the restaurant
promises to bar us . . .
Not seniors at last, but seniors again.
. . . Our duly earned rights and privileges
are threatened by M.L. ' s desires for a well-
rounded graduating class. . . . To pass Ivris
you need to know Chumash, Novi , and "Bart-
lett's Familiar Quotations" . . . Historiah
hasn't changed — the dates are harder, the
names longer, and Hoordos remains dead. . . .
Five foot two, but what those five feet can
do to a lazy English class. . . . History — a
respite from last year's inquisitions is fun
but Faerberisms are funnier. ... "I answer
me. . . . You look like a question mark. . . .
Put that girl in the wastebasket. . . . She
thinks she' s a U boat . . . . Grrr and nineteen
woofs." ... An edifying trip to Stern — any
volunteers? . . . The jury box — the histori-
cal elite are banded and disbanded. . . . Many
things fly open in Novi, and close with a loud
rustle — dramatics, crosswords, and open-
book tests. . . . Mr. Eliezri's quota earns
him great popularity, a place in the winner ' s
circle, daily serenades and the whole class
U's. . . . Undaunted by the lack of a groom,
Jackie becomes engaged at the Chanukah Cha-
giga — boy do rumors fly. . . . Senior pins,
senior pictures, senior dues, but where are
our keys and rings? . . . Sloppy seniors get
dressed up and go to the first Y.U. -Central
social. . . . Not since Doc has Friday been
so much fun. ... We wait expectantly, even
engage Aviva as bait, but all we learn about
is sholom bayis. . . . "Eish Ve Eishto" turns
out to be the theological answer to "Why'd we
skip that Rashi?" ... At the senior weekend
we became very hoarse, very tired, and very
much lighter. . . . Myril and Helene bewitch,
levitate, and bewilder, and the man across
the hall comes in on cue. . . . Mrs. Adler has
a baby girl. . . . Bingo! The Elchanet is a
financial success. . . .

Conflicts of Man
The world's strangest paradox is the paradox of man.
Man, the creature of reason, is also a creature of insanity. Cap-
able of the noblest emotions, he has often committed the most
despicable of deeds. These aberrations of character are due to
the basic conflicts inherent in all men.
Man's greatest war — the war for survival against the de-
structive elements of nature — began with his creation and can
end only in his triumph or his destruction . . .
Man Ap;ainst Nature
Stranded, a small boat is left forlorn in the center of an
endless, raging, storming sea. Hopelessness and desolation sur-
round the ill-fated vessel. Yet, the boat moves on. Not by leaps
and bounds, but it moves. Why? Why should it atttempt to
reach its destination and safety? Because inside the ship there
is a man with will-power, striving for survival and his life.
Has it not always been this way — man against nature? From
the prehistoric days of primitive man to our present advanced
civilization, every conquest of a human being over the natural
elements is turning one leaf in the book of man.
Throughout the centuries famine, drought, pestilence,
flood, bitter cold, and burning heat have all played their part
in this ceaseless war, this fight to the finish. Man has been
victorious and man has met defeat, but, in both conquest and
frustration, he has been strengthened.
Thus nature, by seeking to assert its dominance over man,
has succeeeded in forging a stronger being, in imbuing into
his sometime decadent soul a new purpose, a higher ideal. In-
stead of destroying the human race, nature has welded a unity
among men engaged in battling a common enemy.
Man's conflict with nature is a strange one. It is a para-
doxical war whose aim is destruction, but whose achievements
are progress and a nobler human being.
. . . Man's war against nature is one of the most serious aspects of
his existence. Quite often, however, the humorous side of this battle
comes to the fore . . .
I often wonder why people smirk when I say that
"Batter up" suggests baking to me instead of base-
ball. The fascinating world of sports is completely
passing me by. But please don't assume I'm totally
lost. Oh, no, I proudly held the title of hopscotch
champ for four consecutive years.
I like sports; sports just don't like me. I've enthu-
siastically attempted every one at one time or another
.... the world has yet to recover.
I attribute my crashing failure to the fact that I
am a "southpaw." In my first baseball game (and
quite definitely my last) I hit what I like to think
was a run home (or whatever they call it). The
umpires are still debating the matter, for, you see,
when taught the game, I was simply told to run
around the bases. No one cared to tell me in which
direction, and, being a lefty, my natural inclination
was to run first to third base, then to second, first,
and finally "home."
Grinning triumphantly, I skipped to "home base"
just in time to hear the manager of the opposing
team exchange a few choice words with the umpire.
The ump (who just happened to be my father) re-
torted that since I had run all the way around the
bases, no matter how, it was still a home run. My
team heartily agreed. "No fair. It's against the rules,
anyway. Who ever heard of running around the bases
backwards.'" was the enraged answer.
This, of course, set off what could easily have been
mistaken from a distance as Custer's last stand. I
shyly laid my bat on the plate — not knowing that
one should let go of it, I had clutched it tightly as
I ran around the bases — and quietly sneaked back
to my hopscotch.
But did this humiliating defeat dampen my fiery
drive.' Did I let myself become convinced that I was
totally hopeless.' Did I lack confidence? Did I
lose hope .'
Yes. As the world outside transformed into a
hysterical mob, driven by a blazing, passionate hunger
for Olympics and "World Series games, I contentedly
crawled into a quiet seclusion of my own and read
my way through baseball seasons, football seasons,
basketball seasons, and snowball seasons.
A few years later, however, I reluctantly agreed
to go bowling with a few friends. I'll never forget —
although heaven knows, I've tried — my first game.
What stands out most in my mind is the complete
silence that overshadowed the entire area. Balls
stopped rolling. People stopped talking. A group of
men with cigars drooping from their mouths folded
their arms and chuckled inwardly. Then there was
With long strides I raced, ball in hand, to the
mark and hurled the heavy sphere. Hesitantly it
crawled half-way down the alley in a zig-zag manner,
then stopped for a moment, and rolled gently back.
Someone giggled. Sheepishly, I extended a limp hand,
grasped the ball, and prepared for another try. "This
time it must be stronger, more powerful," I told
myself. And strong it was, indeed. So strong, in
fact, that the ball tore fiercely down the alley, made
a sharp right turn, skipped across the gutter, and
knocked down three pins in the next alley.
I muttered a healthy Irish curse, and then told
myself that I was an outstanding failure. "Why," I
sputtered, 'I can't even develop a good case of ath-
But never fear, dear reader, I'm not that easily
discouraged. As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of
taking up the fine art of fencing.
En garde ! ! ! ! !
. . . The greatest mover of men and, yet, their greatest curse is
the perpetual lust for power and grandeur. To attain this end
man comes in conflict with fellow man and ruthlessly seeks to
destroy the only other being who shares his burdens and fate. . .
A Losing Game
Death, hate, pain, and destruction — these are the gifts of war. Broken
homes, broken hearts, and broken bodies — these, also, are the gifts of battle.
Youth, in all its innocence and beauty, is all too often the sacrificial lamb of-
fered on the bloodstained altar of the battlefield. Young bodies, once over-
flowing with violent passions' and fiery emotion, now merely empty shells —
forever stilled, forever devoid of all feeling, all caring, all life. Luscious
meadows lying peacefully under a gentle, caressing sun, are slowly watered
by the blood of dying soldiers, too young to die, yet too near death to live.
Mighty cities, stretching skyward to the heavens, bespeak man's power and
glory; yet the heavens answer not, for the foundations quake and rot under
the onslaught of man's insanity and shame.
The pictures of war are many, her victims even more; but the eyes are
too blinded with tears to see, and the heart too laden with grief to feel. So,
the horrors of slaughter continue throughout the inexorable march of time
and history; and though poppies may still grow in Flanders Field, so does hate
in the souls of men.
War is a game, and all can play, for death has no favorites. What is
the world's greatest irony.' It is this: that the ideals of democracy achieve
their greatest heights in times of mortal combat — for all are equal then. Who
will say "nay" to the Negro when he marches to his death? Who will say
"hold" to the Oriental when he stops a bullet with his final breath? Yet, it is
strange to contemplate that at this time of supreme brotherhood there is hate,
at this time of extreme self-sacrifice there is murder and violence.
War is a contradiction, and war is a game. The stakes are high — your
soul, your life — and the dice are loaded. There can be no winner, but one —
the eternal, the ever-patient, ever-waiting Angel of Death. Whatever you
throw, you lose — it's a losing game.
Why, then, do so many play?
. . . Man's infinite striving towards ivealth and fame has often been
a source of amusement and gentle mockery. The following essay sati-
rizes this comical side of man' s boundless ambition . . .
Why I Like Ballet
Isn't it marvelous to flutter around like a
graceful bird with feathers of frothy pink tulle
in a ballet school in Scarsdale!
Reginald Van Buren is here, and Priscilla
Van Courtlandt and ... oh! I'd simply die if
I wasn't a student at the Rayow School of
Ballet. Why, every cultured young man and
lady in Scarsdale learns grace in movement on
Isn't it delightful to awaken and be whisked
away by Jarvis in a shiny black limousine! I
gaze through the windows at the common peo-
ple riding bicycles or shooting marbles on the
sidewalk. Don't they know Monday morning
is ballet-time for any well-bred Scarsdale resi-
Mother is so smart! She knows exactly what's
best for me. Why, as soon as she heard Priscilla
was registered at Rayow's, she registered me,
Daddy isn't as smart as mother. He com-
plains every so often about the ten-dollars-an-
hour that my ballet instruction costs. He should
realize how important the Rayow school is.
I think I'm pretty smart, though. I can plainly
see all the advantages of going to the Rayow
School of Ballet. How many other four-year-
olds know that!
Can One Compare?
What is the fairer, the eve or the dawn,
The stars or the sun of a man's life?
The deep, restful sleep or the fresh glorious
The hush and mystery of darkness or the
beauty and joy of life?
How can one con/pare thee!
Is it not as a blooming rose and a wilted floiver,
And yet, as a tiny bird and an opened blossom
Bursting with the fulness of life;
And who can say which is the lovelier?
The fiery wings of youth, longing to soar
higher and higher,
Proud and strong; burning with the desire to
live, to love,
So tender and yet so cruel
With the fierce indifferent heart of youth ....
Indifferent to the wisdom and gentleness
that may be learned only through living
Careless to the older, humbled eagle
flying ahead in the sky;
Desire lost, but Wisdom gained.
The lights of New York City are
the punctuation marks of life. Life is
reflected in the darkness of the East
River, as diamonds sparkling on the
blackness of a velvet background. One
light that should be scintillating is omi-
nously dark. This, the extinguishing of
the beacon of my life, is the cause of
my being here on the parapet of the
They say as you stand on the brink,
it's dangerous to reflect. Yet, as one
reaches the end of life, it is only hu-
man to contemplate the mistake that
can lead a man to take his own life.
I cannot be accused of cowardice, and of
the inability to face reality. My sui-
cide will be an act of courage. I can-
not be complimented for self-martyr-
dom or hari-kari, for it is not on princi-
ple that I die. My death will be an
atonement, a punishment for lack of
principle. I shall even admit to myself
that it will be a self-decreed death-
sentence for crimes against humanity.
Why had I not revolted? One extra
vote, my vote, would have insured the
continuation of the flame of hope, the
steady beacon among the flickering
lights, die endless glass-towered sym-
bol of international order and brother-
hood among men. My personal acquie-
scence could have kept kindled that
light of hope and peace. Now it is too
late for anything but prayer in the face
of death and the end of civilization.
Now the lights of the United Nations
are no longer reflected in the mirror of
"Move along, it's late, later than
you think." The voice of a policeman,
urging me on.
How right he is! It's later than I
thought, much too late. My chance is
gone. Humanity, it's later than you
think, for your chance is gone, too!
They say as you stand on the brink,
it's dangerous to reflect.
The sky is growing dark as if in a scowl,
But it is not the sky growing dark.
The rain is falling in big ivet drops,
But it is not the rain that is falling.
Thunder is breaking out in loud cracks.
But it is not thunder I hear.
The earth is bleeding,
But it is not the earth that bleeds.
My face is growing dark, for I am angry and
My tears are falling, I cannot control their
My spirit is lashed by a tide of sorrow.
My soul is broken by the hollowness of
I lift my head although I wish to cry.
I take my broken soul and strive to mend
I face the world with tiew conviction and
I raise my eyes to heaven and seek.
The sun shines as if to smile after the rain.
The earth is drying and being enriched again,
The rain has moistened the leaves and
Often when I sit in solitude,
Weighted with yesterday's sorrows.
Dreaming of glories to be,
Lost in the wave of time — my life —
Time see?ns to stop.
The past is gone, pushing back
Each passing second, behind;
The future lies beyond my thoughts.
'Tis ahead of me — a moment away—
But where am I?
What am I today in time?
I am yesterday's hopes
And tofnorrow's memories.
Now is never. There is no present.
I am the past and the future.
. . . The birth of a Jewish child brings with it great joy and
happiness, but, perhaps, more than i?i any other religion, it
entails many responsibilities and obligations. The holiness of
birth and childhood is always evident in the feivish home . . .
Birth of a Jew
The three stood together, excited
and full of anxiety. The older man and
his wife gazed thoughtfully at their son
who was about to become a father.
As the mother looked lovingly at
her own fiirst-born, she remembered
what his birth had meant to her and
to her husband. She thought of the
Brit Mila, which gave her son his right-
ful heritage, a place among the sons
of Israel. Being the first-born, he had
also had a Pidyon Ha Ben, the cere-
mony wherein the eldest son is re-
She pictured him as he stood at his
father's side in the synagogue, proudly
wearing a new Talis. She remembered
the expression of awe and wonderment
as his small, upturned face gazed at the'
Ner Tamid, the Eternal Light, glowing
softly in the House of the Lord.
She looked then at her husband and
remembered his joy upon hearing his
son first recite the "Modeh Ani." They
had laughed together at his futile at-
tempts at pronouncing the words of
this ancient blessing. Yes, they had been
proud of their Jewish child.
The father also reflected upon his
son's past. He thought of the many
unaswerable questions that his son had
asked: "Where is G-d?" ""How do we
know that He really is the right G-d.'*"
Those questions had but one answer —
faith; and seeing the strong, assured
faith of the father had given faith and
courage to the son.
The father now recalled his son's
Bar-Mitzvah. He though of being called
to the Torah to utter the "Baruch Shep-
tarani" — "Blessed is G-d who relieveth
me from this responsibility" — and re-
membered how he had wished that he
could forever bear the punishment of
his son's sins, and thereby keep him
free from sorrow.
Both parents had stood by their son
at his wedding, and had given him to
a girl who would grow with him and
care for him, as they had for so many
years. Now this girl was giving their
son life, and a reason for living. She
was bearing him a child to love, to
admonish, and to raise as a true Jew,
a Torah Jew, to carry on the heritage
of his father.
. . . Music, in the past, played an important part in the
Jeivish religion — from the chants of the Levites in the Temple,
to the songs of Zion sung in exile. Modern Israeli music, which
draws its inspiration from the past, also has a place in the
cultural heritage of our people . . .
M 11 s i c T h r o u gh T h e Ages
Music is more than a mere abstract collection of notes, and a song is more
than a composite o£ words. Music and song need environment and background
in order to possess feeling, passion, and meaning.
Dedication, faith, and suffering have exerted povv'erful influence upon
the songs of the Jewish people. Their widely varied backgrounds, the thousands
of years spent wandering, homeless in lands of exile, have endowed the Jew-
ish people with a liturgical and folk music of unique character. The associa-
tions, memories, and aspirations of the Jews as an entity have combined to lend
an emotional significance to their culture and to their song.
Synagogue music has brought to the pulpit the Psalms of David, the_
Shabbat prayers, and the Holy Day services. The modern compositions of
Isadore Freed and Leonard Bernstein, deeply devout and introspective, are
evocative of a faith simple in its dignity, glowing with colorful warmth. Ernest
Bloch, the most monumental figure in contemporary Jewish music, provided
musical settings for prayers. His compositions have aroused the praise of music
critics throughout the world, with some even favorably comparing him to
Beethoven. In his music one can feel the cries and hopes of generations of
The music of modern Israel, harsh and at the same time sweet, symbolic
of the Sabras — the strong, proud-born Israelis — brings to life the history of
recent years, the struggle to renew the land. These songs are simple — they
praise G-d for the earth, and laud the fruits of the earth and the scent of
roses growing in a desert. They are also fierce, surrounded by a halo of heroism,
fired by the recollection of the fight for freedom.
Music and song have played decisive roles in the national awakening of
many peoples. It is to be hoped that Jewish songs will always be remembered
and will serve to do the same for young Jews everywhere, to strengthen their
identity and further a pride in their cultural and spiritual heritage.
HELENE WEILGUS 43
. . . The Jewish religion is immortal — it was the first and
will be the last. It has its foundations in love and nobility;
as long as it exists, so will humanity . . .
Eternity, though an incomprehens-
ible concept for any mortal, is one of
the basic tenets of the Jewish faith.
The foundations of Judaism — G-d, the
Torah, and the Jewish Nation — are
rooted in this concept.
G-d — the Eternal One — keeps an un-
ceasing vigil over the world and a time-
less supervision over the actions and
deeds of each of His creations. One of
the basic principles of Judaism is our
belief in the immortality of G-d. He
is past, present, and future, embodied
in One Being.
The Torah is also everlasting — not
as an intangible and pervading spirit,
but a concrete and practical guide to
men's lives upon this earth. Even during
the most trying periods of Jewish his-
tory, the Or Torah — the Eternal Light
of learning — brightened at least one
crevice in this great earth, preserving
the flickering flame until the time when
it would once again become a blazing
torch filling the globe with its death-
less glow. It is the Eternal Light pre-
served in synagogues around the world
that today symbolizes the flame of
Torah; and it is the Jewish devotion to
learning that preserves this light for
a future when all mankind will shine in
The Jewish Nation— Am Yisrael —
has in its indestructibility defied the
laws of nature and of men. Beginning
with Abraham — who, the Midrash tells
us, defied the accepted law by escap-
ing death in Nimrod's fiery pit — the
Jewish Nation has survived seemingly
insurmountable threats lashing it
against the shores of history. Through-
out tumultuous centuries of persecution
and martyrdom — from Egyptian slav-
ery, Greek defilation, Roman domina-
tion, and Persian hatred to the atroci-
ties of the Hitlerian hordes — by the
grace of G-d and by its own stubborn
and deep faith, the Jewish Nation has
It is this infinity of G-d, of the
Torah, and of the Jewish Nation that
culminates in the eternity of the human
soul. This life, say our Sages, is but a
corridor through which one prepares to
enter the magnificent kingdom of the
hereafter, the eternal resting place for
every human soul. Thus does eternity
affect the daily actions of Jews today,
just as it has affected the actions of our
fathers and of those whose ages have
